Yep. I was also kicked out by Tumblr and by this point I'm starting to accept the fact that I won't be getting any of my blogs back. 

Long story short, apple deleted the Tumblr app from their store for hosting questionable and in some cases illegal pornographic content, Tumblr started a purge to those blogs while also deleting half of their user base and artist that shared NSFW content, and my account was one of the lucky ones that got purged. 

I'll be honest, I'm starting to get used to being kicked out from sites for the content that I make. It's not that I'm happy that it happens, it's just that it doesn't surprise me anymore.

I'm also letting you know that I'll be re-uploading all the Shantae artworks that I think were unfairly removed by Deviantart staff last time, because if my assumptions are correct, they weren't removed because I infringed the restrictions more than they were just reported unfairly and they didn't bothered to check. I don't know if they'll be reported again, but I'll give it a try.

I hadn't seen the link on your stuff. Thanks for that. Otherwise, hoping things go easier.

They already reported my Pearl artwork and another old rottytops one XD

Pearl's 23... That's just kinda extra of whoever reported it.

I don't see why it would be mature content, but I had to filter it because I'm not sure what would happen if I don't.

Last time I didn't even get the chance to edit after I got the warnings, it was report, report, account down. 30 artwork deleted.

The only thing I can think of is the finger, but even then much worse with real people get posted on this site left and right.

I think it kinda proves my point. I was expecting it to be reported for some reason, the finger and the expression was basically me taunting the rules XD

I wonder if I finally reached an admin, I'm still not sure if they're humans at this point in time XD

Someone's gotta be making money off this more than likely, just more interested in unnecessary changes to the site or not paying attention to what's actually breaking the rules or not.

I guess they would only care, like tumblr, if their app was suddenly removed from the store. Then they would take action XD

I wouldn't say super good, but rather "taboo or controversial" XD even then I'm still pretty tamed and vanilla in my subjects compared to other artist.

Before I was so safe that no one payed attention to what I did, I'm not sure which is best.

"Taboo or controversial" my ass. I've seen way worse filth being uploaded and stayed uploaded in tumblr and deviantart.

Art likes yours are the reason why people haven't given up on this webside yet.

I don't know then, maybe someone really has a grudge on me and they started to report anything they can in my account. 

They already reported 4 more artworks, this time they went for originals, and I never got any complaints about those before, so this individual is really aiming to get me suspended or something.
MRdrawordie3's avatar
Unfortunately, that would explain everything. All it takes is one bad apple to ruin the bunch.

Is this problem happening in Twitter, Pixiv, Blogger, FurAffinityor Patreon?

Well, tumblr deleted all my blogs, but I doubt they were reported.
MRdrawordie3's avatar
Yes, but that was because Tumblr panicked once they lost their app and thought that pulling a Thanos on the one good reason why people use Tumblr was going to fix their problems.

Just make sure that you write in the description that you are depicting Shantae as above 18.

Unless they have a policy like DA where the original age takes priority, even Newgrounds has something like it if you read their submission policies. Tumblr is dead for me and I'm losing hope that they'll bring more accounts back.


"It depicts a sexually suggestive image of a child (note: this judgement is based on the image alone, regardless of whether you say the subject is 18+ in the comments)"

It depends of what they consider a "child" but it might be about appearance, but technically if the character is under the age of 18 it kinda qualifies as such.

The only thing Tumblr had going for it was it was un-censored, one of the last sites that didn't heavily restrict what was allowed. Not sure it's worth being there anymore.

I thought about making an account just to follow some artist, but I'm not even sure how many were left after the purge, I don't know if it's worthy either.
Benji-Blacksky's avatar
Crap. At this point you may as well get your own domain. I know some folks moved to Newgrounds

I already made a new Newgrounds account, and I've had my domain for more than a year now but there's obviously less traffic because people have to use google or the URL to find it.
